Combination Disc/Drum Brake Lathe with Bench & Standard Tooling / Super-Duty
The heavy-duty, extended RL-8500XLT combination brake lathe is capable of truing a full 10” deep brake drum. It features independent DC servo motors to command both the spindle feed drives and cross feed drives. This eliminates complex gear boxes and transmissions found on mechanically-driven lathes.

The Ranger Heavy-Duty RL-8500XLT Brake Lathe

The new heavy-duty RL-8500XLT combination brake lathe from Ranger features an extended capacity spindle and can turn a drum that’s up to 10” deep. The longer spindle and the relocated rear bushing provide the RL-8500XLT arbor with enough support to handle your heaviest drums, rotors and flywheels.

The durably crafted RL-8500XLT brake lathe resurfaces brakes quicker and more precisely than any other lathing unit on the market today. Like the RL-8500, the RL-8500XLT features unlimited feed rate settings, allowing the user to modify resurfacing rates with an easy turn of the dial. Now you can decrease or amplify the cut duration for the perfect finish, whether you’re rushing through the first rough cut or performing a single-pass micro-finish. The RL-8500XLT brake lathe is the total package and comes with a strong bench, plus ample tool storage backboards, so your adapters are always nearby.
